[workaround] console-switch screws colors

i've noticed (at least) with a couple of machines that use ati graphics
that switching away from and back to X screws up the colors (using xfb). 
fortunately, i left it that way long enough for the screensaver to kick in
and realize it was fixed by the screensaver!

so if you switch back to x and the colors are screwed, invoke the

 xset s activate

hopefully this is one of those things that will be fixed soon anyway.
